User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
I was upgrading my system from RH7.3 to Fedora Core 1, and during the
process that says "Preparing RPM Transaction" the system would shut
itself down and say something like "it is safe to reboot your computer"

The peculiars:

- I was performing the upgrade via NFS, booting from floppy. 
- My / partition is raid, using md
- My /data drive is on SCSI

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1 Installer

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert the FedoraCore1 boot floppy and boot the system
2.Select all default options, selecting "Upgrade RedHat 7.3 System"
3.Get to screen saying "Setting up RPM transaction"
4.System reboots

Actual Results:  System reboots

Expected Results:  System continues install.

Does it work if you remove the linuxconf rpm first?

Comment 2 Steve Lacy 2003-11-11 05:47:29 UTC
Yes, that worked great.  Thank you very much.  The problem was that I
had to do the following:

# rpm -ev linuxconf-1.25r7-3
error reading information on service linuxconf: No such file or directory
error: execution of %preun scriptlet from linuxconf-1.25r7-3 failed,
exit status 1
# rpm -ev --noscripts linuxconf-1.25r7-3

So, I guess FC1 just couldn't deal with the RPM removal errors.  Weird.

I have had exactly the same problem upgrading a RH 9.0 that has been 
upgraded continuosly from RH 7.1. Removing linuxconf with --noscripts 
fixed the issue.

This should work now in our current codebase.
